After a few days of mild weather, we’re in for an arctic blast and stormy weather this week.

Tonight, colder air will move in with a gusty wind, causing temperatures to drop. This will be the first push of cold air though it won’t be the arctic air. Lows will be right at or below 30 degrees with much less wind Monday morning.

A second push of cold air and the first arctic blast will move in Monday night between 7 p.m. and midnight. Snow showers are also possible ahead of the cold arctic air. This could have a minor impact on the evening rush on Monday with a coating to an inch of snow possible. After the snow showers end, the wind will pick up and the temperatures will drop. It will then be windy and much colder overnight, going into Tuesday.

More cold, arctic air will move in Tuesday night until Thursday morning. Highs will be below 30 despite sunshine. This period will begin with bitter, cold windy chills. As soon as the wind dies down, low temperatures will be in the teens.  Wednesday and Thursday will see lows in the teens though the wind chill won’t be as bad as it will be on Tuesday morning.

On Friday, a storm will develop bringing a mixture of rain, snow and ice. The area could see snow, sleet, ice and then rain on Friday. Stay with the NBC10 Weather Team for further developments.
